So yeah, what does Riomax® even cost?
Yes - good question. Glad to help!
First off - just a little about Riomax® that you may not already know...
- Highly Concentrated
- Low Consumption
- Low Cost To Feed (per head per day)
- Nutrizorb® Digestion Pack
- Esqort® Mineral Technology
- Backed up by our COSTGUARD® Consumption Guarantee
Riomax® is hard to put an exact price on because there is a lot of variations and different sizes, different packaging, USA to Canada, forage quality and quantity discounts. Let's open this up and give you an idea at least. What we focus on, is bringing that cost per head per day down. Up front Riomax® is up to two to three times the price of competitor products per ton or per pound, but because it is so concentrated it has a low daily consumption or daily cost.
The cost ranges somewhere between 16¢ and 67¢ per head per day. Built into this range, there are several factors that affect your cost:
- Quality of Forage
- Higher Quality Forage = Lower cost/head/day
- Quantity Discounts
- Larger Order = Lower cost/head/day
- Product Upgrades
- Add Fly Control = Higher cost/head/day
- Container Type and Size
- Smaller Container = Higher cost/head/day
- And for Canada
- The Exchange Rate

Why does consumption vary and when does it vary?
Cows will self-regulate on Riomax® so if the grass is really good, they will eat proportionately less. If the grass is really poor, they will eat proportionately more. Cows have learned to self-regulate naturally. (Why can't humans get that figured out?!?) What we see is a consumption of 1/8lb to 1/3lb with 1/3lb being your ceiling that is where the COSTGUARD® consumption guarantee kicks in. That takes the risk off of your shoulders.
Where we have ranchers that use Riomax® year-round, they will typically see an average consumption for the year close to the low side. What they are seeing is those cows self-regulating because they are on a consistent plane of nutrition, they don’t have the peaks and valleys like they would if you only feed for a few months and take them off again.
Riomax® quantity discounts start at:
- 3 ton (6,000 lbs)
- Half Load (10-12 ton or 20,000-24,000 lbs)
- Full Load (20-24 ton or 40,000-48,000 lbs)
OK, now take a couple minutes to fill out this form and one of our Territory Reps will get back to you to understand your needs and challenges, what you're trying to get done, what your conditions are etc. so we can then make a sound recommendation based on what your actual needs are.
As one Rancher from Philipsburg, MT said: "Riomax® is only expensive if you don't know how to do math."
